I think I prefer mass murderer to wiccan yes. And control with one word is obviously ridiculously overpowered unless there's more to it.

And you must be just as ridiculously short on time given that you managed to add a whole 4 lines to your CS over 12 days.

Barring any unforeseen apocalypses, IC will be up tomorrow! This would be a good time to make some relations people (and for Asmo to finish his vision)! Remember, I don't have a huge plot and railroads for you guys to hop on, how you interact with the other characters is going to a big part of the game. I get the sense people have a tough time of them, so some pointers:

If it helps, you can think of them as "intentions" with another character, instead of relationships. Like, when the game starts, who is the person you're most likely to run into, and what how will you react when you do? You don't have to fully commit to hypothetical scenarios, it's just starting thoughts. Relations can be solely based on stuff you've learned about the person in the day after the calamity started, by talking or stalking them, or you might not have met them at all yet, and the relation is how you will act when you do.

Below are some suggestions/examples for relations. They need a bit more detail and personalization than here, but not much.

- X knew Y long ago. They were friends really, but fell out of touch. X is surprised to see him/her/it here of all places. But X cannot allow its personal feelings to interfere, if Y stands in its way, no mercy will be shown.
- X have met Y before, though it's impossible to recall when and where. Trying to bring out the memory only brings up an uncomfortable, sinking feeling. X saw Y walking the dead streets, but due to this ominous feeling, decided to avoid an confrontation for now.
- There's something wrong about Y. Every cell in X's just boils over with murderous rage when it encounters Y. Y must be stopped, killed, whatever, as fast as possible.
- Y seems gullible, malleable and a little frightened. It should be easy for X to make them believe they are on the own side and make them do all the hard work. X have already seen Z's power in action and is pretty sure they could need the backup. If X could get the two to kill each other, that'd be even better...
- Y is interesting. Plain and simple. Their powers seem quite useful and their persona quite unique. Y tickles X's curiosity in an odd way, I'd be a shame to just kill them outright, though it might well still be necessary.
- This is just awkward. X met Y at a bar many years ago. It was one of those relationships that might have been better had it been left as a one-night stand. As odd as it is running into this one person here, it's oddly comforting for X, among all the death and ruin, to meet someone associated with memories of warmth and intimacy. Even the bad memories are rosy on the background of the apocalypse.
- X haven't met Y yet, but they are inclined to be sympathetic to their goals. X can easily understand why Y feels the way they do, why they would go so far for such a irrational vision... But irrational it is. X cannot allow Y to succeed, that much is for certain. However, X knows not if it would be ignoble to string Y along, pretending they're on the same side, or just get it over with. Y will have to die eventually.
- Y seems like a soul mate in all this madness. The only other one as confused and apprehensive as X, and seemingly a decent person to boot. It'd be good to at least have someone to whether the storm with, or least get ones bearings.

And of course the more literal relationships of family, spouses, lovers, mutual acquaintances and colleagues. One could also have a relation to Asmo's character in the form of the person that he is most likely to take form of when approaching you; That is, you can write a suggestion in the relation field for what character Mnemonic should pretend to be when those characters meet. Or you could try talking to Hana about if perhaps she has revived a person your character knows. Creativity and shit.

I spoke with Ro a few days ago, and (assuming his character is accepted) his character will be my relation...If the way we worked out out works.

They've never actually met, but her daughter was caught as a bystander in something his character did, and that's why the girl is dead...so if when Elaine finds out, there will be a reckoning.

Issat okay? I'm okay with being a relation to more than one, if we need it.

Can I get an idea of how powerful you want us to be using a comparison? Like, strong enough to solo an army no sweat? (city busting) Stong enough to conquer the U.S. by themselves? (continent busting) Strong enough to fight with the Z fighters during the cell games? (planet busting) Strong enough to kill Superman permanently? (multi-planet busting)

I don't want to make a really strong character, and then end up being too powerful to have fun with others.

I'd say the first, city busting. Especially since one of my characters power is exactly that. Since 1v1 is gonna be the focus of the game, the powers need not necessarily be large-scale, however. It doesn't have to be able to take down an army, because you don't have to, it just has to be strong enough to match the power of the other people of the game.

The most important thing about the strength of the power is that it leaves room for other characters to react when you use it against them. It can be ever so brutal and deadly, as long as one can "dodge" or "block" (in a figurative sense as well as litteral). A power that works at the speed of light is unfair because no one can reasonably avoid it. An invisible power that you can't know about before it hits you is unfair. A power that can instantly kill under specific circumstances that can be defended against is fair.

Otherwise, look at the already accepted characters and my characters for example, I think they establish a pretty good baseline. For instance, note how Iris' character can "steal" knowledge from people, but he has to mind-fight them for it. Much the same with Asmo's, he can fuck you completely up, but only if he manages to out-willpower you first. My character Carrie can destroy blocks of city no probs, but I made it explicit that living things are harder to erase, so it is reasonable someone could resist being erased. As long as it has a weakness or limitation so it is reasonable anyone could defend or resist your power, it doesn't matter how strong it is.

IC will be up monday. Partially so I can polish it off some more, partially so the last stragglers can get a chance to post their sheets, partially so you people can make your relations. Please try to get them finished by monday.

BG07 and Slipslash. You can have relation to someone who already has a relation just fine, though. They don't have to be mutual.

Considering joining, haven't RPed in a while.
Stuck between two character concepts I suppose. A philosopher/Marxist or a fellow who's decided the best way to make the new world better is to rule it himself.

Got a rough idea of a power for the second, but nothing I try seems to fit the first.

Hm, I don't have any great idea for Marxism. A summoning or duplication power? Something "the power of many" themed?

With philosophy, there's lots of interesting options, though. Extreme solipsism, where you can make anything disapear if you can convince yourself it isn't real. Or dread existentialism, imposing dispair on people just through their being. Or Plato's "nothing we see is real" cave allegory, linked to illusionary powers, or shutting down other peoples senses. Or just all of this. Man, why didn't I think of this sooner.

No. That's even more vague than before. I barely understand what it does. What is "pure energy"? Energy is just the capacity for work, it has no form of it's own. Are you talking about kinetic energy? Your current power have no clear limitations or features.

And your relation still makes no sense. Jack is dead, the wiccans are dead, unless otherwise stated. If you want a pet npc or want me to play one, you should talk to me about it, you cannot assume they live.
